Keep on Swimming!!

The Simon Says Stamp Picture Book animals are ADORABLE...and the Turtle, in this collection, is no exception!!  I die cut one of these little guys and put him in the ocean, along with an encouragement to "keep on swimming"...
I used the Simon Waves and Hills stencil along with three different colors of Oxide inks to make the ocean.  I then die cut the little guy, embossing the bottom layer of green, then cutting it out...this way, the spots and dots of the turtle are one piece.  I used two layers of kraft for his shell, and a layered, darker green body.  I stamped the sentiment with versamark and white embossed.  I raised the panel on a white card.  Here's a close up...
This card is an encouragement for me...that no matter what I'm facing...and likewise, for you...no matter what you are or may be facing...KEEP SWIMMING!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
